What do you have up front? It looks stock, but i'm trying to guess what mine will look like since we seem to have a similar setup.

Re: Monroe load levelers

yes it those will fit and it should raise the back of the jeep a little bit and level it out with the front end better

Re: Monroe load levelers

i think the f150 643 MLLs will give you rake on top of the lift still.. you should be level with a RC lift if you have a 4.7 or 5.7L ...if you have a 3.7, youre front end probably looks a tad higher.. the LLs will help to level it, but i bet you still end up getting a half inch of rake due to the fact that they typically boost the rear 1-1.5". if you find rake to be okay, then youll be good.. if you wanna be even all around, and your front end is too low looking afterwards, just throw a strut spacer up front for an extra half inch.

either way youre good. but you may end up wanting a strut spacer set.

Re: Monroe load levelers

How did you all get the body lifted high enough to get the 643's in? Where on the vehicle did you lift? I just took a stab at it tonight and didn't get far so called it an evening. Try again this weekend.

Re: Monroe load levelers

un bolt the stock shock, then in front of the tire there is a place on the frame you can put the jack. jack the body up untill you have enough room to bolt in the bottom bolt. bolt the top of the shock first though.

Re: Monroe load levelers

I just installed the 646's today and i love them... got them from Advance Auto for $83 + tax (local store pickup and used a $40 off code: retmenot124) cannot beat that deal anywhere. Even the parts counter guy couldnt believe the money i saved just by buying them online first.

Compared to the Bilsteins i definitly gained about 1/2"-3/4". The difference is noticeable both in height and handling. Now my rig doesnt look like it has a sagging ass anymore and is sitting nice and purdy

The real test will be when i load up my cargo carrier, 24" snowblower and 10 gallons of gas. All i need is some snow now!!
